Riot Games and Amazon have a long history of partnership when it comes to Twitch.
For years now, various League of Legends items are available as free loot for members of Prime Gaming (previously known as Twitch Prime), and now it's time for Valorant to join as well.
Earlier this year, Riot was giving away Radianite Points through Prime Gaming, and now there is new content slated for the next 10 months, starting with Hot Take Gun Buddy.
This awesome Gun Buddy will be exclusive for Prime Gaming members, so if you want to put your hands on it and show it in your games, you will need to get it through Prime Gaming membership.
Thankfully, this is not a complicated process, and if this is your first time trying Prime Gaming, you will even be able to get it completely free!
Here's what you should do in order to get Hot Take Gun Buddy for free.

In order to get the loot, you will first need to subscribe to Prime Gaming. There is a free 7-day trial, so if you never before used (Twitch) Prime Gaming, you can get it completely for free.
In order to get the free trial, go to Prime Gaming and click Try Prime, then register for a trial version, and cancel it before 7 days pass if you are not planning on using it after you take the loot.
Once you have an active Prime Gaming subscription, you will need to connect your Valorant (Riot) account with your Amazon (Twitch Prime Gaming) account.
